The Arrogance of Our Own Conviction

Posted On Jul 12, 2022 By Addison Wiggin

Charles, our next reader, seems like a hardened skeptic. “It would be helpful if you can be more specific in your post. Vague messaging wastes the reader’s time. I still do not know what you stand for in regards to Climate Change. Or the meaning of some of the points you were trying to make.”

I thought I had been very clear. I have no “stand” on Climate Change. How could I? I will say while I’m writing this I’m Destin, Florida. It’s 86 degrees and very humid. It’s also mid-summer, so what should I expect?

My only opinion, at this point, is that climate change is what political strategists call a “wedge issue”. The subject gets people fired up. Political operatives want to get you fired up on one side or the other so you vote for their guy.

I don’t vote so I don’t really care about the wedge issue. I’m curious about the science. And since I’m not a scientist myself on going on this trip with John to Greenland to learn with my own eyes, my own ears, take a risk about talking about it… and ask a lot of questions.
“It is challenging to accept the fact that much of what we believe right now,” “will, in 20, 100, 500, or 1,000 years, seem as absurd as some of the ideas above. But it would take a great deal of arrogance to believe anything else.”
